At this time in history when the survival of the planet depends on global community and understanding, the United States has to assess the racism that is under the radar, yet drives policy that has a global reach.

Robert Jensen, a white journalist and professor, looks at racism in American "polite society." Drawing on his own experience, on theory, and on data, he "reaches white readers where they live." Jensen encourages an honest look at the "pathological nature of white privilege." Join Dede Yow and Darren Crovitz for an energizing discussion of this honest and important book.

There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history: 27 million slaves, 80% of them women and children. We will show the film: "Not for Sale" and have a dialogue discussion after the film. This film depicts seven examples of ways in which modern day slaves are exploited. It provides statistics on human trafficking (a $30 billion a year industry) and the 1 million children who are forced into prostitution each year. We will discuss what is being done globally to document and abolish these practices.

There are more slaves today than at any other time in human history. We will show the film: "Slavery: A Global Investigation" and have a dialogue discussion after the film. This film defines both historic and modern day slavery. The products of modern day slavery include: carpets, cotton, sugar, bangles, fireworks, glassware, clothing, cocoa, etc. These products are sold at a low price at the expense of the quality of life of human beings. We will discuss what is being done globally to build public awareness about this issue.

This highly acclaimed film, The Color of Fear, takes a close up and honest look at the state of race relations in America as eight North American men of diverse ethnic backgrounds (Asian, European, Latino, African-American and Native American) gather under the direction of seminar leader Lee Mun Wah in truthful dialogue. All who want to deepen their understanding about race and work for trust among us should join us for this film and dialogue following in preparation for Lee Mun Wah’s visit to our campus to hold two seminars, "Mindful Communication" and "Walking each other Home" later in November.
